Okay raise your hands, ladies: how many of you have not only wanted to, but have actually gone so far as to bring on the crazy after breaking up with your significant other? Well Melanie Fiona is out to teach you about the art of breaking up with class through her "Girl Talk" chat with Necole Bitchie.

"Ladies, I know it's so easy to fly off the handle and throw stuff outside, and burn stuff, but there is nothing good that comes from that," the singer said. "No matter how much you think he is the worst person in the world. There is nothing worse for him to see than you strong, walking out, being like 'You're going to miss me when I'm gone.' Not the 'Oh my God, she was crazy. She burned all my s--t. She cut up all my stuff.' 'Yea, that's why you can't be with that chick, she's crazy.' That's what dudes say!"

Fiona also opened up about breaking it off with someone who wasn't a good fit for her and knowing enough to walk away from the relationship.

"What I've learned is that there is so much strength and power in being calm and saying what you gotta say because you've done the work to know what is for you and what's not for you," she said.

"I was with someone that wasn't supporting my growth and it's a question that you have to ask the partner you are with; 'Do you love me for the girl that I am or do you love me for the woman I will become?' And so, the truth of the matter is, you have to figure out who that woman is. And hopefully if you are with someone, they can love you through those things," she added. "If it’s not right, it’s not right and don’t force it to be right. The right person will come along and love you for you, your growth and the amazing woman you are."
